Tuesday’s TPS Report: ‘Staccato’ Ribbed Cardigan

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Classiques Entier® 'Staccato' Ribbed CardiganI know the peplum trend is getting a little tired — but I think this is a gorgeous wool/cashmere cardigan. I like the low buttons, and the almost slouchy feel to it — so many of the peplum tops look as if you either a) have to have a perfect bikini body or b) be Spanx’ed within an inch of your life to wear them. This cardigan seems like a much more relaxed nod to the trend (and I, of course, love the purple). One thing I don’t love: the cowl neck tee it’s styled with here. Maybe it’s me, but I almost never like a cowl neck underneath a jacket or cardigan — it always just looks fussy and weird. Thoughts? The cardigan sweater is $178, available in both purple and black, at Nordstrom. Classiques Entier® ‘Staccato’ Ribbed Cardigan

Suit of the Week: Classiques Entier

Classiques Entier® 'Ania Mélange' JacketFor busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

Hello, beautiful. I love (love!) two things about this suit: that layered hem and the crosshatch fabric. First, the hem: it’s interesting! It’s different! It isn’t too fussy or overly feminine (no bows, ruffles, ribbons, or more). Second, love that dark charcoal color with a slight crosshatch pattern. Gorgeous. The jacket (Classiques Entier® ‘Ania Mélange’ Jacket) is $268, and the skirt (Classiques Entier® ‘Ania Mélange’ Pencil Skirt) is $148. A matching pair of pants (Classiques Entier® ‘Ania Mélange’ Pants) is $168.

Thursday’s TPS Report: Marled Sweater Jacket

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Classiques Entier Sweater JacketOooh: I like. A lot. This Classiques Entier sweater jacket is the perfect blend of sweater and jacket, I think — it looks comfortable but still professional. Love the marled plum, the three buttons, the detailing/darts at the shoulder, and even the faux flap pockets. Even better, it’s on sale: was $168 at Nordstrom, now marked to $99.90 (sizes XS, M, and XL still available this AM). Classiques Entier Sweater Jacket

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Raw Edge Collar Jacket

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Classiques Entier® Raw Edge Collar JacketLove the super-saturated fuschia color of this jacket — what fun. The raw-edge detail on the lapels is beautiful, and I like the ruffled, three-quarter length cuffs. I’d wear it with a sedate sheath dress or pair of trousers, or — if I were in an adventurous mood — I might incorporate some orange in the mix, either as a tank top, a necklace, or even a patterned skirt with significant orange coloring. (I think a solid-colored orange skirt would be a bit too… too for this pink, but that’s me.) It’s $228 at Nordstrom (sizes XS-XL). Classiques Entier® Raw Edge Collar Jacket

Thursday’s TPS Report: Pencil Skirt With Ruffle Hem

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

classiques entier pencil skirt with ruffle hemA number of Classiques Entier items seem to have hit the sales racks at Nordstrom, including this simple pencil skirt.  I like the slight A-line shape to it, and the fact that it’s a “soft, lightweight flannel” fabric (with a lining) sounds lovely.  Was $168, now $64.97 (lucky sizes only).

Tuesday’s TPS Report: ‘Painted Parsival’ Sweater

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Classiques Entier® 'Painted Parsival' Sweater
iconOur love affair with Classiques Entier continues with this sweater. Love. Love! Love the inset waist, the shawl collar, and yes, the three-quarter length sleeves. It strikes us as the kind of sweater that would look amazing with a pencil skirt, on top of a sheath dress, or with trousers — or on the weekend with jeans. We might pair it with a bold tank or tee beneath it — perhaps a red? The sweater is $178 at Nordstrom.com.  Classiques Entier® ‘Painted Parsival’ Sweater
